'Deadliest Catch' Crew Spreads Captain Phil Harris's Ashes at Sea (VIDEO)

Before the start of the new fishing season on 'Deadliest Catch' (Tue., 9PM ET on DSC), there's an important ceremony to attend: a burial service for Captain Phil Harris, who died of a stroke last season.
His son Josh says Phil wanted his ashes spread at sea: "The tides will carry him wherever he wanted to go."
On the season 7 premiere, all the boats gather in a circle. After his ashes are launched from the Cornelia Marie, crew members fire pistols and set off fireworks in his honor.
"Safe journey, man."
